how to get new keys made if you don't have a key code that supposedly comes with the keys when new.

I think this is it, maybe. They were attached to the 2nd key fob.
Thanks Tom!
I have the lower one, but not the upper. The back side of mine has a sticker with what may be the key code or its the inventory #, a bar code of this number, and the VIN.
The number in question is T999999 (letter T with 6 digits) is your key code in this format?

No, nothing like that. The top label I posted has a 5 digit code and a bar code. That 5 digit code doesn't match anything on the bottom label. The bottom label has a 6 digit code on top (2 letters, 4 digits), and an 8 digit code on the bottom (2 I mean 3 letters, and 5 digits). On the back is a QR code, and a 12 alpha-numeric code, like this xxxx-yyyyyy-zz. None of the codes on the labels appear to match up with the other.

ADDED: Oh, the 8 digit code on the front bottom of the 2nd label matched the last 8 digits of the VIN.

So I went to my local locksmith. He cut me two keys. Sunny keys that open the doors and stuff but wont start it for 10$ total. He also gave me my keycode and he got it off the original key he said. Lol. He did in 8 minutes what my Ford dealer still can't do. He also said he would make me a fob key and program for 10$ if I provide the fob. 40$ on Amazon.

I need to see if any locksmiths around me still exist!
Phil did say you could read the key code off the key. I didn't follow how to do it, but I would hope a locksmith would!
There is a non-remote key availabe that will start your truck, needs to be programed to truck also.

Hi Mike,

Yes...there are 5 unique Triangular notch depths numbered 1 through with 5 being the deepest as I recall. and each key has 5 notch locations.

A competent locksmith can make you a fully functional key/fob without the code. My local Ford dealership wanted $225 +$50 programming fee for a key for my 2019 Ranger. A locksmith charged $175 for the same service.
