Default ? about leveling

At the risk of making myself looking more ignorant than I am I have a question. I have been reading through several posts and the info is beyond putting a value to. I purchased my 02 SWB 4x4 used and using info in forums measured from the bottom of the rim to the bottom of the fender and between the front and rear there is only a 1/2" difference is it safe for me to assume it has all ready been leveled? Any info is greatly appreciated.

What's the total height from the ground to the top of the wheel arch in the front?

Based on your comparison measurements it sure sounds like it was leveled.

Being it that it is that close in comparison i would say it has been level too...usually you can tell by looking at it, if it rakes real bad to the front it hasn't been, if you were out there measuring you must not have been able to notice anything just from eye so there has been something done to level it out!
