Yes, you have a few options, so I will overthink it a little for you as well.

Best option: Pay to have it shipped. Buying an unknown used vehicle to haul parts 1400 miles through the mountains/hills between michigan and Georgia. Bad idea. Plus you're talking about some pretty underpowered trucks that are gonna struggle with some of those hills even with out a load or aerodynamic drag of a jeep tub on a trailer.

Rent a truck, I have a few buddies who constantly rent fullsize crew cab pick up trucks for long distance mountain bike trips where they need the extra space. I don't know the cost, but at least you will likely be in a low mileage newer truck that will pull down reasonable mileage, be comfortable, safe, mechanically prepared for the trip, etc.

Fly down, rent truck to drive back?
