It will be pretty wild if they can get the curb weight of the CT close to the curb weight of other ICE pickups.

For example: a 4x4 Crew Cab Chevy Silverado with a 5.7' bed weighs 4,920lbs

A custom "Trail boss" can reach as high as 5,240lbs.
Is the Trail Boss with a 6.5ft bed, or is it still the 5.7ft?

I do not expect it to be more efficient than the Model X, but I do expect it to be more efficient than the Rivian, Bollinger, and Lordstown.

That is the 6.6FT bed and 157" Wheel base, there is a slightly smaller trail boss with 5.75' bed that is 5,190lbs

Tesla claimed the CT will be a Class 2B, or “medium duty” vehicle, with a total gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000-8,500lbs.

With a rated payload capacity of 3,500lbs, that means the CT will weigh anywhere between 5000-6500lbs. I don’t think Tesla would choose to have the CT in this weight class if they had the choice, which tells me that it’s very likely the CT will be greater than 5,000lbs.

Correct with the Payload capacity being so high if the CT's curb weight is at least 5,001lbs it will fall into the Class 2 medium duty classification. The only Reason other light duty trucks don't fall into this category is because they don't have that much payload capacity.
