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.

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.
