    For that matter, check the brakes for operation somehow. I rented a drop deck to move a 5500 lb machine. It had surge brakes, I never used surge brakes before, thought I just couldn't feel them...

    Without going into great detail, No. Rent a trailer. You'll be 1000 lbs over where that truck will be as full as it wants to be, and that last 1000 lbs makes a HUGE difference, plus it's top heavy...
