Unless properly tied back and DOWN the engine crane will tend to follow the 
truck and will definitely tend to want to tip onto it's nose. 

Been there, done that, didn't work well, but didn't get hurt - God looks 
after madmen and fools!

I've gotten several good answers on removing the tower from the truck. 
Here's a question, would it be possible to use something like an engine 
crane to lift one end of the tower and then have the truck pull foward 
until the tower is almost out of the truck,  Then lowering that end to the 
ground.  Move the engine crane to the end of the tower that is still in the 
truck, and lift that end.  Then have the truck pull away and lower that end 
to the ground.  I guess my main question is would the engine crane be able 
to handle the dragging forces as the truck pulls away?  It sounds like a 
good idea to me, but looking for input.  Thanks.
