All depends on if you dont mind busting the top off the steering colum, located under the top side of the steering colum under the top cover of that is a rod that runs down into the dash. The rod can be used to actuate the actual switch that is located under the dash and is mechanicaly connected to the key slug. Dont remove the rod just expose it so u can push it inwards to run the vehicle. When finished Just wrap a bandana around the colum and no one will know. Option two is, do you live near a large city or by chance is one of your nieghbors an old school coke head from the city. If so, they should know how to use a slide hammer to pop the key slug out and then you can use a screwdriver to operate the hiden rod that i just mentiond. If it wasnt dark outside i could send you a picture of my 78 cj 5 that is started by pushing in on the rod. I also had a 92 s- 10 that i drove for a decade like that. Idk if i can post a contact info or not but if you respond i could try to assist you.

Yes you will need a steering wheel puller. They normally can be borrowed from places like autozone
