    I would like roof rack reqs. Primary use will be for kayaks possibly mountain bikes, so the availability of add on parts for this is a plus. Thx!

    So I am a pretty big kayaker and I need a way to haul it on my new ride. What type of roof racks (cross bars) would you recommend? Also, the cheaper the better! But I don't want to get something that's going to fall apart on me, lol.
  5. Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    I am needing some help with roof racks. I have never used one before so I am kind of at a loss. I have seen two variants on the roof rack set up. One where there are bars placed lengthwise along the roof then cross bars attached to those. The other where just the cross bars are installed...

    I purchased some OEM Cross bars/Luggage racks for my 2016 Soul. Can't find the mount bolts. Does anyone know the bolt size for the OEM mount bolts ??????

    So I'm about to buy a 2013 KIA SOUL PLUS. I want a roof rack. I've seen the SSD rails, but I'd prefer the factory ones. I know this topic has been done to death, but I can't seem to find the information I'm looking for. Here's my dilemma: If I get these factory rails Roof Rack 6P 1set Genuine...

    So I just spent 2 hours reading many of the posts regarding SSD's Performance Rails and Crossbars for 2010-2014 Souls. After having gone through them, I'm making the following assumption, among others: SSD makes a roof rail/rack for all Kia Souls 2010-2014, with or without a sunroof, excluding...

    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...

    I got my SSD racks late last week and I'm here to say, they are fantastic. They look great, work great, and were easy to mount and attach. And best of all, I can now use my Soul to haul my stand-up paddle board around. Bueno!

    I apologize if this is a redundant question but I can't seem to find the exact answer I am looking for as to a roof rack for my 2012 Kia Soul Exclaim. I want something that I can just snap into place on trips and remove when I don't need them. I DO NOT want to drill into any part of the car and...

    Are the roof racks on the Soul removable? Part of me thinks not, but I'm not sure of anyone has done it.
  14. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    has anyone successfully removed/changed the two of them.. i know there was talk but has anyone actually removed the roof racks? what does entail? i spoke to the sales rep at my local dealer briefly on this and he said that they are not removable and come from the factory with or without em.. im...

    Who uses a bike rack on their SOUL? I'm not talking about a roof rack. Are there any available that just mount to the hatch?

    Hello everyone. Looking at getting my Soul in a couple of weeks. I was wandering about the roof racks. I need someplace to put a family of fours luggage on long trips. I have seen a lot of pics of racks in different sections here. I was wondering if you would mind posting pics of just...

    I'm so disappointed in trying to find a way that doesn't break the bank to put rails and a ski rack on my US soul. I live in Washington so I called Canada thinking I would make a run for the border and they informed me that the Canadian rails will not work. I spoke with Rack Attack in Portland...

    I haven't seen much talk about this but does anybody have bike racks mounted on their Soul? Looking for pictures and specs if possible. Thanks.

    Thule roof racks has anyone put a Thule roof rack on their soul, or been thinking about it? i had one on my old car, and would like to put one on my soul with the kayak setup. i don't know if it would void any of the warranty, because i know KIA has a roof rack of their own. any feedback would...
