I do have a high end oil extractor and it works like a champ on the Mercedes. Instead using a tube it has an adapter that fits into the top of the dipstick tube creating a seal. Open the vacuum and it takes about a minute to suck every last drop out.
Unfortunately the Durango does not have the same design and the adapter would not work. Also, looking at the engine cut aways an allpar.com you can see the dipstick tube does not go all the way to the bottom of the pan so it wouldn't get all the oil out even if I did make an adaptor for it. However, you can still stick a tube down the dipstick line, it will just take longer because of the smaller diameter. I'm going to try this and then pull the plug to see if there's any oil it didn't get.
