rewell6 is on a distinguished road
At 8600#'s plus a trailer, plus whatever you put in that isn't counted in the displacement and you will be over the 10,600 capacity of your truck (most likely way over). Even if you risk it you could tear up your tranny and that would cost as much as hiring someone else to move it. Plus they will have insurance.

It is also 10' wide and that is over width for most states (I don't have time right now to check yours). That means you would need at least a follow car and maybe a lead car, oversize load signs, and possible permits.

With just those 2 problems it would be much wiser to hire it out. Not what you want to hear, but......

You could drive the route and see what overpasses are there and if there is a way around (up the ramp and back down the ramp) then when you call you could give them an idea of what it would take to move it.
