There is no Jeep Wrangler in the picture, this review is 6.5 years old and I am the first person to post on it. Let this die PC!

Since you delay block and severely scrutinize everything I try to post then pay attention to this!
Give me a break! This review is 6.5 years old, not one person ever commented on it until today 2/28/2015. The complaint is about a roof rack for Jeep Wranglers and the picture is of a Suzuki vehicle that has no roof rack. This is Pissed consumer at its best.
The person that posted this has 19 reviews in total from 6.5 years ago that were never marked as resolved almost all are without comments.
