If the speedometer still works,then no you don't need the speed sensor.The problem sounds more like the catalytic converter Which was a recall item on most Durangos and Dakotas for that year should be replaced for free at the dealer.

Yes i have a 2000 dodge durango going up hills it jerks and sputters and you can hold your brakes and mash the gas and it sputters through the carberator

Just a guess here,but your fuel filter may be partially clogged and may need replaced. Also,your fuel pump may be going out.

How hard is it to replace the front drive shaft on a 2001 Dodge Durango 4X4?

Not hard at all. If you climb under it and look, you'll see where it mounts to the front differential and to the transfercase. Grab some tools and have at it! Pretty simple job.

It jerks alot while driving.It jerked so hard that it knocked it out of cruise controll.Could it be a fuel filter?

Yes. Check your fuel system completely.
The fuel filter is dirty or the fuel pump is loosing power.

Engine sputters when giving gas, has a hard time accelerating

Have the cam sensor and/or crankshaft sensor checked. They could be going bad.
