    I just bought my 2nd Kia Soul, this one a 2018 SX turbo with the Tech package, which includes the Panoramic roof. I have a 16.5 foot canoe that I need to carry on the roof. Since I have the Panoramic roof, the dealer parts man told me that the "rail mounted" crossbars don't work with my SX (no...

    Hi Folks: I just ordered the OEM cross bars from Amazon for my 2015 Soul (no sunroof). I am now looking for a cargo bag that works well with those factory cross bars. We are making a very long trip and I want the backup space. Any recommendations? I would be super appreciative if someone...

    How's everyone doing?? Don't really know if this should go in this section of the forum, but oh well. I got the idea in my head a few weeks ago that I wanted a basket for the roof of my Soul. I found a nice decent one for $20 off Craigslist. Then I decided to paint it red since I have the Red...

    These came dealer installed. Does anyone know if there is a front side or back side of the crossbar. They seemed to be tapered on one side and rounded on the other. Reason for asking is trying to determine what the source of the whistling is coming from the rack. Thanks.

    I went outside to look at my rails and measure them.......the old style SSD ones Mike first offered. I measured 1.5" thick but my eyes may be playing tricks on me. Can anyone run out and quickly verify this? Actually, I just re-read the link I included and Mike from SSD verified 1.5". The...

    Hello all you peeps that have already passed the awful "decision" barrier and are back to a normal life... I love the look of the Soul and the idea of all the room, but I also would use it to make a round trip from Wisconsin to Arizona and back annually . I'd like to hear from anyone who has...

    So I'm moving from Orlando, FL to Los Angeles, CA. I plan on driving my 2014 base model Soul loaded with my possessions. Any concerns I should have? It's going to be a 2600 mile trip and I'm wondering if the Soul can handle a long journey with the weight of a fully loaded car? Also, how reliable...

    Just a warning to those that purchased the aero cross rails that fit onto the SSD racks. I noticed that they are attached with very little reinforcement. I originally over tightened them and when I took them apart I noticed that the screw was held in by a small steel pin inserted into plastic. I...

    The cross bars will get powdercoated and I may have him install a trap door on the skid plate. He also hooked up the HELLA lights. Here was a fun shot with some racing magnets a friend threw on there as a joke.

    I am looking to install cross bars on my 2012 Soul 2U. Does anybody know how far apart rails on the roof rack are? BTW. I don't have my new car yet, hence the seemingly stupid question.
  17. Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    On the Site under Soul accessories they list cross bars(no roof rails) $287.87 no picture. I was wondering if anybody know what these are? They are not the cross bar for cars with roof rails? They show cross bars for roof rails I assume these are different somehow. P.s I don't have roof...

    I took advantage of some alone time on Saturday when my wife took our 4 1/2 year old daughter to her Aunt's for the day. Basically had 12 hours all to myself and it was a beautiful day out, so it was time to torture some dealers. For the past several weeks, I've been researching the Scion XB...
