Pop open the tailgate and see if you are getting power and ground to the window motor when you try it with the dash switch. There is a safety switch on the latch so if the tailgate isn't up and latched, it won't work.

Also, you can try supplying power directly to the motor with a fused jumper wire from the positive terminal and a ground wire from the negative terminal to the tailgate itself.

If you need to get the window down, disconnect the flexible driveshaft from the motor and connect a drill to it. The drill will take the place of the original motor, thereby allowing you to lower the window.
