Don't think I can be of help on the removal, but I'd use 3M Hi-Strength Spray Adhesive 90. I've used it in the past to adhere speaker cabinet carpet to a dashboard of an old car. Current owner still has the dash intact and it hasn't peeled up at all. I did it over 10 years ago and still going strong.

for removing the headliner, you need to remove all of the things that are bolted to it. ie. the visors, dome lights, handles, overhead console, coat hooks, etc. Once you do that, it comes down easily.

as for the glue. the very high strength 3M spray adhesive like he mentioned will work, or you can use what i used from joanne fabrics and get this stuff in a black spray can that is just called "headliner spray glue" Its $20 a can though and i bet you would need two to do your durango. BUT the stuff is really really strong.

Whatever you do, don't cheap out on the glue or else you will be redoing it. Use that stuff from joanne fabrics or whatever 3M's strongest spray adhesive is. Dont waste your time with imitations. I tried doing mine with a cheaper spray adhesive that i just picked up at walmart for like $5. Sounded like good stuff. Dont remember the brand but they make a lot of glues that i had used in the past. But after a couple days the headliner started to come down in some areas. When i tried the new stuff I got, i could tell as i was spraying, the difference witht he glues. This stuff was a much stronger bond and goes on much thicker than most spray adhesives.

When in doubt, gas it. It will either fix the problem, or at the very least end the suspense. (Ironically this motto had nothing to do with this)

I can't really help you with the interior disassembly, but for god's sake, please post pictures when you're done. This sounds awesome

the visor clips are a bitch. when i did mine i cracked one of them. not really noticeable since i painted it but it still pissed me off. i tried to pry it apart and thats what cracked it. honestly just pull with all your might while grabbing it from the sides and you should get it. its ok if you have to pry a little just be careful how you do it.
the coat hanger hooks on mine were actually screwed in. you just had to pop the little cover back to expose the screws. not sure how they are on a durango.

The visor clips are a bit tricky. They are a two piece clip, the outer part acts as a wedge. After you pull out the outer part, the whole clip will pull as one piece.

i was able to do my 2003 QC without taking any shoulder restraints down but I did sort of unsnap the plastic pillars. This job was more tricky than I anticipated. Removal of the head board was very cumbersome and it actually broke in one spot (2" sliver between windshield and overhead console) trying to maneuver it out of the one of the doors. If you decide to take the shoulder restraints down it looks like a very large torx bit is needed to do so.

Nonsense, I have not yet begun to defile myself.
