Default Truck weight

I just bought my 2003 1500 SLT quad cab 4x4 a month ago. I picked the tag up yesterday and found it was a C tag. Those are for trucks over 7500 lbs. I don't think that this truck is that heavy, but can not find an information. Anyone know for sure?

wchnu, my 04 3500 was around 7300 lbs. without researching, i would guess at an 03 1500 being around 6000 to 6500. 7000 pounds doesn't sound unreasonable depending on how it is configured.
