NO
NO
AND NO again

are your brakes up to the job
is your suspension up to the job
is your chassis up to the job
are your wheels up to the job
is your steering up to the job

and is the driver up to the job

with ideas like this i think not

the van was built to the spec of 2590 for a reason

Chassis , suspension , brakes , all spring to mind . Increasing by 30% is a big step ..!! A 1000kg braked trailer may be a better option , if practical , and cheaper ..!!

3500kg?

I'd be trading it in for a bigger van like a Crafter, Sprinter or Ducato
