oisinirish is an unknown quantity at this point

You might be able to get through the front by bending some metal and fishing it in between the grill and hood and trying to pop the lever that way. There's gotta be a way. I know it. I can't believe that your truck would be the only one in 40 yrs that broke a hood release cable. Maybe a dealer or shop knows?
