Flex gas connection

About to change water heater, but new one has different dimensions. Rather than redo the gas pipes I am hoping to use flex between existing and new tank. Any issues? Gotchas? Is it legal in NJ?

If too complicated I will have to call someone. Not looking to create unsafe situation.

PS: I've replaced this tank before but it was same model/dimensions so everything lined up.

Hello?. Anybody? Also looking to do flex hose for water lines. I'm afraid without a hard connection the tank could tip over (although you'd have to overcome 500 lbs of weight).

Threads don't get removed.... they just get old and fade away.

Flex hoses are ok to use.
Make sure the water heater is on a firm base and doesn't rock.
