You should be able to fab something up. It's basically about 3.5' long with a hook on the end. The hook doesn't actually "hook" in but the rounded end of it fits into a slot (yeah, I know where your minds are going) and then you turn it. I know this because I had to use it on Saturday to lower the spare. I'd get you a pic but it's a bit late. If nobody has one by tomorrow, I'll post one.

If your owners manual is the same as mine, it's on pages 329-330.

Check eBay motors. I picked up a spare jack for about $12.
