You're right........Grump has made that line on 35's before..........I wasn't feeling it because my tire kept slipping off the rock (wet sand) and it was taking me way too much effort to re-align while clunking my diff's & bumpers off the rocks............Dad wasn't real into it either!! ;)

Looked at my pic again. Hard to see the difference. The old shot definately has quite a bit more sand in it compared to Saturday. It's hard to say for sure because of the angle, but looking at mine it seems that the boulders may be a little closer than they used to be. Either way, the play stands, unnecessary roughness by the boulder.
