Need thoughts from people, as I cannot really find one attached to Chief DH. Would you get Rhineharts or Vance and hines? I like deep, throaty but also nice and loud ones.

From reviews I've read, rhineharts are a bit louder than Vance and Hines, but have less of a deep rumble. I love my v&h turndown pipes. Without baffling, they are pretty loud. There's videos on how to make them even louder, but I added some baffles to mellow them out a little.

In my garage I have an 18 DH with Indian air Rineharts and cat removed stock cams, a 17 Vintage with Indian air V&H stock cat and stock cams, and an 18 Chieftain with Indian air Rineharts stock cat stage two cams. The idle sound is somewhat milder on the V&H bike. Getting after it there is no contest in that the Rineharts have a deeper and louder roar that is awesome. The Chieftain was bone stock and the Rineharts were added after comparing the better sound between the 17 Vintage with and V&H and the 18 DH with Rineharts after pack riding the group together for thousands of miles. Performance wise the two stock cam bikes are very similar. IE get Rineharts

I’ve heard about every slip-on pipe for these bikes. If you really like louder with a bark go with the Rineharts. I do cross country riding so I much prefer the Vance & Hines. They rumble but don’t wear you down on a long ride.

Got them installed and damn, those babies sound sweet. Vance and Hines were deeper, but RhineHarts have a bit of a more aggressive sounds it seems. Once again, thank you for all the answers.
