  1. Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Im wanting to put some rails and bars on my soul, but the prices are ridiculous. Thinking of making my own. Anyone else do this before?

    Anyone have a set that they never got around to installing? I wouldn't mind taking them off your hands... -Ryan
  3. For sale / Trade / Wanted
    Never sold anything like this before but I'd like to get rid of them since I can't use them. Hopefully I'm doing this right. My Canada buddy got them for me not realizing the american souls don't have all the necessary mounting points. I was going to mod them on my G1 (despite this) but...

  5. Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    2015 Soul + here, about to travel CT to AZ and back, loaded with gear. Thinking of getting the official Kia rails and rack (Yakima). Wondering if anyone here actually owns these on a Gen II and can give feedback? Need lockable because we'll be overnight parked at hotels several nights each...

    HI will a set of 2011 roof rails go on a 2015?

    KIA SOUL with PANORAMIC ROOF RAILS are available 2014, 2015 and 2016 models! KIA MOTORS does sell the roof rails worldwide for cars with the panoramic roof. However KIA MOTORS "USA" decided against it! If you want roof rails for your car I suggest you contact KIA MOTORS USA and submit your...

    Hey guys. I have a 2015 Kia Soul Exclaim (USA model) with the Cloud White Exterior and Beige Leather Interior. I have The Whole Shebang Package, The Sun & Sound Package, and the Umber leather package. I'm wanting to know if it is possible to put the roof rails (found on Canadian models in...

    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...

    Few photos on my Thule 450 mounts on the SSD Hybrid rails fit nicely I like the low profile the combo made. Use it to hall some lumber today for small project, I like it because its only a 5min. job or less to install the crossbars.

    I just got my 2015 Soul :tongue-new: and now I need a way to carry my paddle board. On my last car I had a Thule clamp system and it made music while I sped through the city at 30-35mph. I'm thinking that rails and crossbars are the way to go now. It should be a little quieter. According to...

    I have a 2009 Soul Samba (UK) and would love a set of black roof rail (running lengthways). Does anyone know of a distributor in the UK? I like the SSD ones but have heard shipping to the UK is very expensive! Has anyone any advise or experience?

    I'm sorry if this is a repost. It looks like there are multiple other threads regarding the rails, and many people have commented on this exact answer. But I am wondering what people think the pros and cons are of the Factory Crossrails for the 2015 Kia Soul vs the SSD roof rails? And are you...

    After releasing our SSD "Factory Style" roof rails for the 2014 Souls a while back, we really had no intention of producing another roof rail for the 2014's. That is, until we had so many customer requests for traditional long rails that fit in the factory "fixed" cross bar mounting locations...

    Pictures of the 2014 Kia Soul SSD roof rails installed. In my case I bought a brand new hail damaged car and saved thousands. The rails help hide the roof dings!

    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...
