    Not sure what the 3 at the beginning means, but
    2019 = year of build
    04 = month of build
    06 = day of build
    8296 = a sequential number that is used somehow by Ford for scheduling. It really means nothing - when it gets to 9999 it will start over at 0001.

    The number is question is a rotation number and is used to track where the vehicle is in the plant. When at the plant we used to spot a concern and with the rotation number, they could track down where the unit was.... Otherwise...means nothing once the little Ranger pokes it cute little head through the door of the assemble plant, headed to the shipping lot.

    Interesting - I captured 4 separate versions of my window sticker while it was in progress (4 separate dates) and all have a 3 at the beginning of the blend date (which is what that item at the bottom of the door sticker appears to be).

    Here is the blend number at the top of one of my window stickers:

    upload_2019-12-3_18-46-24.png

    For mine, 0143 was that sequence number.

    There is a lot of "code" on the window stickers.....
