Fuel Tank Swap

I am considering changing my stock fuel tank (26 gal) with an after market tank (50 gal) and have been looking at titan fuel tanks. I live in Eastern Washington, and was wondering if anyone had any experience with this swap, and if they did it themselves, or had a dealer perform the swap, and how well the swap went.

Any advice/ info will help, thanks.

You could get a excursion tank that holds 44 gallons for cheaper then the titan tanks.

Just realized this was in the 6.7 forum. No idea if a X tank would fit on a '11.

I had the dealer do the swap for me on my 09 and I never had a problem with it. I plan to do it again in my '11.

I put a Titan in my 05 and never had a problem. I ordered a Titan for the 2011 and it showed up 3 days later. I picked my truck up from the dealer 3 days ago so I'll be installing my tank this weekend.

Will changing tanks mess up the on-board computer stuff like mpg, fuel used, distance to empty, etc?
