it's complicated math but I'm guessing if you hook up 3500 lbs behind it you won't be able to carry too much stuff IN the van itself...."legally"
I like the Ridge and if I were to own a pick up the Ridge would be my 1st choice. It has a 3/4 ton payload rating and the Oddy is only 150lbs less.
From what I have read if you did an side by side towing test between the Ridge and an Oddy towing the identical 3,500lb trailer the Oddy would out perform the Ridge in every test.
The Oddy's are a top raded TV.
PS... your new spring set up on the BF looks real nice. Looks like a pro job.
