Stock fender to ground height?

Anyone know what the measurement should be, top of the wheel well opening to the ground, on stock tires (235/85/16) and springs that aren't sagging?

My truck has V code front springs and currently measures 38". I'm trying to figure out if they are sagging before I decide how much to lift it. If they are sagging, I'll replace them first.

A better way to measure (that is more consistent) is to measure from the center of the hub to the fender.

I measured my neighbors stock 2002 f-250 for reference:

Front center of hub to fender is 24"
Rear center of hub to fender is 25-1/2" with the stock 2" f-250 blocks.

Yeah. Thanks for mentioning. The hub to fender measurement is a whole lot better, but outside of the jeep scene, I haven't seen many other groups use that measurement. I'll check mine and compare to what you measured.

Still, does anyone know what the measurement should be, if the springs aren't sagging? I've searched the site and google extensively, and I can't find a number. All I can find are post that say, I installed new springs or X codes and it raised my truck "x" amount of inches. What's the baseline though?

I'll add that I have an e99 f350 dually, and I'd like to leave an inch or two at most of rake and run 255/85/16 tires. Currently have about 6" of rake; looks bad, and I know the e99s have a taller rear block, but I want to leave it.
