The photos you posted show a tj with a stretched wheel base, that is why the corners are cut/trimmed, this is refered to as a competion cut or "comp cut"
I wouldnt recommend this to the novice jeep modifier, it is alot of work, and your jeep will be out of commission for at least a week or two. longer drive shafts, custom control arms, brackets, brakelines etc..
But to answer your previous questions.....
The fuel filler assembly can be relocated just about anywhere you please, alot of people relocate them to under the driverside tailight
others choose to move it inside of the tub, and for the hardcore crawler, you might even get a tub mounted fuel cell.
as for flare options..... there are not very many that are sold retail, most are custom jobs ... i believe poison spyder makes a very nice set of full corner guards with a comp cut that feature a flare. ... and they seem well built.
as for flex well ... you wont really gain any extra flex ... comp corner cuts are just for streched wheel bases really, but you can gain extra rear wheel/tire clearence with a hiline cut ... basically this consists of lifting your rear flare about 3" and cutting the excess sheet metal.
