So the max payload capacity is advertised as 2,502 pounds.

Forty-five sheets of ½" drywall at 51 pounds per sheet equals 2,295 pounds. About 75 pounds of insulation and 75 pounds of tools and a 50 pound ladder brings it to 2,495 pounds.

The van barely squatted and still handled and braked really well.

Love this thing.

That's just gorgeous. I'd like to see a standard bed pickup carry all that! And forget about if it might rain.

Is there any way to measure how much suspension travel remains with a such a load?

I think the only trucks that can match it are the 3/4 tons. Pretty respectable for a van.

The travel could be measured, but I didn't do it...

I'm 87% sure they're compatible. Same bolt pattern, center bore. I bolted a cla 18" and a 22" off a S class (aftermarket BS). Both fit just fine.
Offset is the only maybe. Should work though.
