Did your truck not come with the key to unlock it, check your glovebox? I think your talking about that little lock over your spare tire crank?

Should just be the crank arms to lower it. Stick them through the hole under the tailgate and twist. I never had any kind of lock on mine.

Stick the rods in it that are in the cab with the jack. Look in your manual.

take all the small rods, put them together to make one long rod(with the "S" type crank at the end. take the end that is pointed and insert in thru the opening just above the rear bumper. when fully inserted, start to crank it slowly. it may take some work to get it started, but keep trying.
