If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier you can use Draw-Tite hitch # 24915. It does not come with a ball mount. Then you have to make sure the accessory...

Hidden Hitch offers the # 60347 and Draw-Tite has # 24915, both of which would also be largely concealed behind the bumper. All three hitches have the same weight rating, and would...

  • I did some research on your 2010 Kia Soul with the manual transmission and found that it can be flat towed. Models with automatic transmissions cannot be flat towed and must be towed with a tow dolly like part # RM-2000-1. I recommend checking the towing section of your owners manual for any other procedures or limitations that Kia may have to flat tow your vehicle. The Blue Ox Patriot, # BRK2012, the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit, # BX2715, and the Alpha Tow Bar, # BX7365, are all...

If your crossbars are bigger than 2-1/8 x 1-1/8 inches you may want to check out the Rhino-Rack Fairing for Roof Racks, part # RRRF3. This fairing measures 44 inches long and will fit crossbars that have...

  • The Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Bike Rack # Y02624 is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Kia Soul.

No vehicle's trunk or hatch should be opened with a loaded trunk-mount bike rack installed. The weight of the rack and bikes presents a pretty hefty load for the trunk/hatch hinge mechanism, which was really designed for handling the weight of the hatch...

  • The Rola roof rack # 59789 is best utilized with the 2014 Kia Soul that has no existing rails or crossbars (a naked roof). If your 2014 Kia Soul has existing rails or crossbars, I recommend Thule AeroBlade # THARB47. They are very sturdy, quiet and aerodynamic. The Thule foot pack # TH450R has rubber coated steel clamping straps to provide maximum security and strength. There isn't any confirmed roof racks that work with panoramic sunroofs unless the vehicle has existing...

  • I am not sure which question specifically you are referring to but out of the two that are on the product page for Pro Series Cargo Carrier, # PS1040300, I pulled the following statement. When the 1-1/4 inch adapter is attached, it measures 11-3/16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier. Without the adapter it is 6 inches. This carrier uses a regular trailer hitch pin and not a threaded bolt. All of the trailer hitches for a 2010 Kia...

  • The 700mm (or 27-9/16 inch) bar spread places the roof rack feet at what are the strongest parts of the roof, according to Rhino Rack. In order to realize the 165 lb weight capacity, the rack would need to be installed as directed in the instructions. If the crossbar spread is varied, the weight capacity would be unknown.

  • In order to determine if this Curt 20x48 Cargo Carrier, part # C18145, will work on your Kia Soul with the Curt Hitch, part # 11110, you will have to take one measurement.

If this measurement is less than 6 inches you should be able to use the # C18145 as it measures 6 inches from the center of its hitch pin to the basket of the cargo carrier. If you need more...

  • A searched for a 2012 Kia Soul on the Roadmaster site for base plates and did get it to come up with the part # 522112-1.
