Brake pedal almost going to the floor and fluid coming from the rear on a 2000 Durango

Sounds like you have a leak in the drum brake wheel cylinder. They happen, and more often than you would expect.

You'll see in the pictures, one is the new part and the other shows where it is on your truck.

If the cylinder went bad, you'll see brake fluid leaking, even slightly, out of the rubber boot on either side of the cylinder.

The brake system on a 2002 dodge durango has no pressure

Do you actually see brake fluid coming from the bleeders? Check for a broken brake line. If no fluid is being lost and the peddle has proper pressure, then the brake booster has failed. If their is no pressure at all, then the master cylinder has failed. Replace accordingly.

Make sure brake fluid is full and cap is off of the master cyl. reservior.
open the bleader valve on the new caliper and let it gravity feed the fluid until full/overflowing.
place the brake pads on the new caliper and replace the caliper securely on the truck and replace the wheel.

bleed the brakes of any air.

My brake line broke under the drivers sear of my 99 durango does the who break line need to be replaced. All the fluid leaked out and you can hear air coming out in the front wheel

Pressure fittings can be used depending on how bad the line actually is you can cut it back far enough to where it is good and use another length of brake line with a few pressure fittings if you do not want to go all new lines however you'll still need to bleed the system brake line to that wheel as well as possibly the passenger side. Obviously you'll need Brake fluid and a few tools.

Broken Brake line

It's the same as any other car or truck. Simply cut the rubber off & there's a nut,like any other brake line. Loosen the lines as you would for any job. Now you say the lines are rusted,if they're that bad then you'll need to replace them from front to rear. This requires a tubing bender(hand held) & a doulble flare tool & unions. You can forget about that "expensive" part. It's a brake balance controler & never goes bad.

After 20 miles rear brakes tighten up and makes thumping noise

It is probably the flexible rubber brake line that runs from the axle to the metal brake line on the frame. When these become old they don't allow the brake fluid pressure to reduce when the brake is released.
