    Hey guys! Looking for the lowest roof rack possible that can hold my James Baroud Grand Raid. I love the roof top rent, but it's an inch or two short of getting in the garage. I've got Yakima racks right now and I feel like it sits so high! Any thoughts?

    I am in the process of purchasing a used '07 element and am looking for feedback on yakima racks - does anyone have input on the different types of bars (round vs. more aerodynamic), towers, etc.? I have a rack system already so am wondering if it's worth re-using some of the parts I already...

    So I bought two things recently. A fishing kayak and a condo. The kayak needs to go on the roof of my Element but the underground parkade has a very low door and I couldn't fit with roof racks. I'm ok with using foam pads to protect my Element roof but needed something for my straps to attach...

Have yakima roof rack jet stream model as well. I don't keep roof rack on all the time, and I am hoping to not mount Solar panels to the...

    Hey everyone, I just built the luggage rack you see on my E and I figured I would share it, in-case anyone wanted to see it or was planning on building their own. I'm not completely done with it. I still need to put a sheet of expanded aluminum in the middle section and build a wind deflector...
  11. Greetings & Introductions
    Hello from Noblesville, IN. Just purchased a 2003 Element for my 17 yo daughter who is SOOOOO excited to have her first car. It is for school and college, with a camping twist. She got a kayak for her birthday to go with it so the first thing is a roof rack for the kayak. I'm a big fan of...

    Happy New Year ... E'ers! I'm pretty sure that someone quite recently posted a great build for a set of roof rack feet made out of aluminum C channel. They were coated up in a grey metal paint, and the dude had slotted out the roof garnish so things closed up nicely. Does this ring a bell to...

    So I should've posted this a year ago when I made it and installed it on my Element, but now I can post about it's performance as well. I've forgotten most of the dimensions and bolt/nut/washer sizes. Sorry. (Photo Album here, in case pictures don't show.) I needed a strong roof rack on the...

    We're finally buying OEM roof racks for our Element, and I wanted to know if anyone has had theirs fail from too much weight. The Honda racks claim just a 66lb weight limit. We want to get a cargo box, and it seems like the bars would barely hold that and some stuff. Wondering if it's worth...

    Hey folks, I have the dog ramp that Honda sells as part of the dog kit. When I travel with my four dogs + wife + kit, it becomes a challenge to store the ramp in the Element. When we are all in the car we put one of the rear seats up on the side, but keep it in the car. Does anyone have tips...

    Hi, I recently purchased a used 2005 Honda Element EX 4wd, manual with 63,000 miles. I had the Honda dealer give it the once over before I bought it and it checked out great. It is a good car so far, have put about 2500 mixed miles on it, city, highway, dirt and gravel. I have a yakima rack...
