Default Meaning behind the fender stripes

New to Dodge so bear with me! What can you tell me about the two fender stripes I'm seeing on so many Dodge trucks? I like the look but don't want to look at getting a set if I don't know what they are about. Like putting a HEMI decal on the truck when you don't have one under the hood, know what I mean!

Dodge now uses 2 red hash marks as its symbol and Ram has taken the Ram head as its logo. Technically, the trucks shouldn't use the hash marks since they're not technically Dodge, but I will never describe my truck as a 'Ram', it'll always be a Dodge to me since it's hard to break 60+ years of tradition/history.

Since you're an '02 you're still a 'Dodge' so feel free to use the hash marks/warpaint

Saw em' on a Honda the other day. Kid had no idea why he had them on there.

Even my wife pointed them out and said, "Isnt that a dodge thing?" and she doesn't know a damn thing about cars..

Well, not really a Dodge thing as best I recall:
Pretty sure the double hash marks showed up a long time back in Le Mans to denote Rookie status on drivers (like neon yellow number plaques in other race divisions), except I though they used the bumper rather than the fender.
GM swapped over to using them on their 'Grand Sport' edition corvettes and anniversary editions, and their LeMans team also used them in black to pay homage to a crew member that passed away in a recent champion effort.
You see them all over on camaroes (camaros? Camari?) for special editions and on the new vette models again recently.
Not sure why the Challengers suddenly showed up with them, except the above mentioned new Dodge branding, although they look bad ass, so why not?
[I'd rather see more strobe and AAR inspired designs, personally]
