Unfortunately this Tow Daddy towed vehicle wiring kit will not work with a 2008 Honda Element. If you are looking for a direct plug and tow option with no wire splicing you could use Demco 9523086 Towed Connector 2007-2012 Honda Element
. The other option is Hopkins Towing Solutions 55999 Universal Towed Vehicle Wiring Kit
this one is universal so it will involve splicing of wires. Hope this info helps in your decision.
