Diesel fuel weighs approx 7 pounds per gallon. Adding a 50 gallon tank will only add approx 175 and 200 pounds. Most drivers weigh this much or more. So,, adding the larger tank should not affect the stance of the truck when viewed in a static status. I do not notice any change in the static stance of my CCLB truck with the 65 gallon Titan tank.
Adding a 50 gallon tank to a LWB truck might be possible. Without a tank and test fitting, if would be impossible to know if the LWB fuel tank mounts would need to be relocated or you would need the SWB tank mounts. The next problem one might encounter is the location of the fuel pickup/float/fuel return. Woudl the fuel lines need modifications in length? Lastly would be the fuel tank fill hose. How close to the LWB location would it be or mods be needed?
