  1. Custom roof rack help

    How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    I have a 2019 kia soul and I tinker on multiple things and when I came across rectangular metal futon beams, I notices the size would make great horizontal roof rack beams. So I have 2 and from another scrap piece of the same metal I made spacers to go over the molding to elevate the bars. I...
  2. Kayak / Canoe Attach Point?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    What's the best place to attach front and rear tie down ropes when carrying a kayak on the roof of a 2015 Exclaim? Both front and rear bumpers are made from plastic that would not hold a metal hook in place, and I can't find a place to tie the rope. I thought about attaching the tow hook and...
  3. SSD Rally Light Bar and Roof Racks...Looking For Final Install Pictures

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    I am considering installing SSD Roof Rails and an SSD Rally Light Bar to my 2016 +. Before I make my final decision I would like to see if any of the members of this forum have installed them so I can see what they look like. I have seen them on eBay; however, the pictures in those listings have...
  4. Another roof rack idea

    How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    I have a 66" set of Yakima bars and q-towers left over from my last car. Because the bars are so wide, loud, and used so infrequently, I generally keep them at home; I have extra-wide bars because I often move bulky-but-light objects (e.g. scaffolding) on top of the car. As I understand it...
  5. Anyone wanting to sell their crossbars?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I've been dying to get a roof rack for my car, but living on a college budget isn't the greatest of things. So, I wanted to try my luck on the forums before saving up to get brand new crossbars online. I've got a 2010 Soul without factory rails, so I'd need the naked roof crossbars. I was gonna...
  6. Roof rack for bikes (or maybe hitch rack?)

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    Hello. New here, so I don't know if I'm posting in the right place or if there are existing threads I should read. I have a 2105 Soul, no roof rails. I want to carry 1 bike occasionally and 3 - 4 bikes rarely. If I have the roof rails, cross rails, and bike attachment installed, can I...
  7. 2015 Kia Soul Roof Rack

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I have a new 2015 Kia Soul+ and I have been looking everywhere online for a roof rack that will attach to the pre-installed roof rack anchors. The closest I have found is the 2014 Kia Soul roof rack on Amazon sold by Kia. Will the 2014 fit the 2015? Or are the dimensions different? If it doesn't...
  8. SSD vs Factory Roof Rails

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    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...

  12. 2011 roof rack

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I need a roof rack, and quite frankly, I need it ASAP. I've seen plenty of posts here about removable ones, such as by Thule, but the guy at Pepboys told me that my 2011 Soul cannot handle a removable rack because of a lack of... a rain guard, I think it was. My inquiries to custom shops about...

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Just added a roof rack today. I have seen several posts on the web regarding what options here are for getting a roof rack on a Soul, therefore I am posting this. An outfit called "Rack n' Road" in Seattle did the drilling and assembly. (listening to the drill going into my 10 day old car was...
  15. Thule Traverse Roof Rack System for Soul (no-drill solution)

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Hello, I bought my Soul (exclaim, java) a few weeks ago, and since then I've been trolling the internet for a roof rack. The best options I have found are the Yakima 54'' Tracks (rack attack has a guide) and the Perrycraft Dyna Sport rack. Both of those require you to drill holes in the roof...
