I would say probably "Yes". Because if you will notice the gable is balanced at the bottom where the white door slider hangs. Those overhang tails probably only carry the weight of the shed style overhang. You'd have to put an eyeball on the inside structure to be sure, but I think you'd be OK.

Unfortunately, you would likely have to retain that full wall where the three windows and personnel door are for the main roof support.

are the trusses notched into the 6x6? if they are, i dont know how you could put the beam ontop of the posts.
your in greenbay. so if stock lumber is still there(may be wis building center...or something like that) stock was sold..........the truss factory there can help you out with the size of the beam(doubt the 10" is going to be big enough. you may be able to notch the header into the posts.

hopefully the overhang is canted and the posts are really not needed. if this is the case, you should be able to do what ever you want to have a 16' Garage door.

i would still have the rep from the truss factory come over though.

good luck
