The installer needs at least six feet for the flex connector on the stacking gas dryer.
Can I use two 48" flexes and connect them together?
I find anything longer than 48"

No, but you can get a 6' piece of csst and the fittings thouth without a license no one will sell it to you.

Please read your CSST manufacturer's manual. It states that CSST CANNOT be used as an appliance connector.

No, but it can be used to extend the existing pipe and then a short appliance connector can be attached to it. sorry for not being specific enough.

I've seen six foot flex lines. Under IRC and UPC they are allowed for ranges and dryers.

I have seen 6 footers in the 5/8 size for ranges. I have not seen a 6 footer in the 1//4 " for dryers. You definitely cannot put two together. It would be a fairly simple matter to put an elbow ahead of the gas valve and run a pipe vertically say 4', then put the valve up there.

Naturally, that pipe would be secured to the wall in some way, and as with ALL gas work, you have to pull a permit on this.

Half inch is what I am accustomed to.
