I could be wrong, but the only difference in 79 was the trim package. no difference in engine or drivetrain parts.

the durango was a ranchero-like vehicle based on the fairmont. fox body platform probably made them not a good heavy load rated vehicle think they were offered from 78-82. probably couldnt be named ranchero caused its introduction didnt coinside with the already existing ranchero design,made to compete with the plymouth counterpart-the dodge rampage and plymouth scamp.

ranchero

I didnt mean to exclude them, but i was just stating the fact that the dodge-plymouth was in competition with the durango-unibody. the gmc were full frame vehicles like the ranchero. i would never compare the el camino with the Durango.:smile5:

This is my Ranchero, it is sporting a newly rebuilt 351w with aluminum heads 202 valves and 190cc runners, hooker headers full length, 40 over bore, 262 XE comp cam with 1.6 rockers and performer intake. I wanted the torque low for street driving, 1300 to 5,600 RPM. It is a pretty decent driver with front rear sway bars, new shocks and a full frame vehicle.
