Didn't see flames but I did know a guy who had his daughters jeep painted with like mud and grass all over it. Looked pretty sweet. But no flames. Imho I think flames are too much. Its your jeep do how you want though

Instead of rattle cans, I got my son an air brush. He is going to go to town on it this summer....can't wait to see the results. He is an artist and when you put an artist's tool in an artist's hands it is surprising what may happen. He is 16.....a young artist. Jeep is white now but something tells me with the 1/2 gallon of yellow paint that the predominate color will be yellow by the end of the summer.

Yea I can't stand when you see a car with flames and they are like punching you in the face. I love when you have to actually look and see flames. Or the sun hits it right and you see them. Go for it man.
