Hey David. The part that pulls the tire up, or down is most likely broken. You can have a friend crank the tire down while you pull down on the tire, that might work. You can buy the crank and cable unit from ford. I dont have the part number right now, but i can get it. Note, when cranking the tire back up KEEP THE LIFT CABEL TIGHT.
Let the cable pull the tire back under the truck a little if need be. A lose cable will wrap up lose and cause a lock up problem.
