I ordered our Ruby Red Sport 400a on 1-12-13. I had a vin the next week via Crystal. Today, 2-9-13, my window sticker became available. My question is this...is the build date located on the sticker somewhere hidden in code? As per Crystal my eta is 2-25-13. Also, what comes first, the sticker or the build?

I'm super excited and can't wait!

Louie,

The number at the bottom that starts with 1 has the build date; at least that was the case for me. In your case 20130216 is the date. I am not sure what the others numbers mean. 7 days to go....

Hey Louie,

sterry05 is steering you in the right direction as far as build date, keep in mind that there can be some movement on that date depending on the plant manager's discretion. The window sticker usually populates on the website around the same time that the vehicle enters production.

So is it possible that the actual build date could be ahead of or behind the date coded on the window sticker?

ooooh great news 20lbbooster! My ETA is also 2/25/13. Here's my window sticker.... looks like according to the sticker, my build date was today. But my window sticker became available 2/08/2013. Our Explorer's are going to be arriving around the same time so I expect everyone with 2/25 ETA's to have pics posted by 03/01... hehehe
