2008 Tahoe, can you fit a full size couch inside?

If so, how much is it going to stick out?

The couch appears to be 8 foot long, the width/height is normal. I need an estimate. I realize the tailgate is not going to close.

Can you drive with the drivers seat far forward? Both rear seat folded right?

Yes, both seats folded and the driver's seat far forward. I realize it's not a full size truck bed that's 8' and it will stick out, the question is, how much?
I am just trying to visualize it.

Second question..

I have a Queen mattress, I want to transport it via the TAhoe as well. Would it be possible to bend it a bit length-wise so it fits? I realize the width won't fit.

Just eye-balling it seems like the couch will stick out by about 2 feet past the tailgate. Should be safe to transport it seems.

How far? A daily uhaul trailer rental is about $18-$25 and quiet easy.

I don't think the sofa will fit because the opening is not very tall.

I would invest in a tape measure.
