What Infiniti or Nissan vehicle uses a longer tow hook? Need for IPL bumper

I Need a tow hook license plate mount that will fit the IPL bumper. As many of you know that bumper sticks out 2" farther then the standard or sport. I swapped bumpers now I need a longer extension shaft. I was able to rig my current one to work but its not a good idea to drive it long term on only a few threads in (solid now but don't trust it). I cant find any "Ebay" ones rated to fit the IPL bumper. And all the sellers are too lazy to measure other Infiniti or Nissan ones for me. Or I just get a generic response to just use the vehicle calculator, no help there. I am sure there is another car with the same bumper tow thread out there that has a longer length extension shaft. Total length needs to be around 9". I don't want to spend $80 or more on a fancy branded one. I could chop my current one up and frankenstein mod it to be longer. But thats time and work. Would rather just spend another $20-55 on a different one. Anyone have any solid leads? Would be appreciated.
Pictures show extension that fits G37 Coupe Regular and Sport bumper. Then my mod to sneak another 1 1/2" out of it to fit IPL bumper.

See if Home Depot or a hardware store near you has a 1/2'' X 9'' Galvanized pipe in electrical; kind like this:

Going to have to Frankenstein it from there. Or, I got a cheap, thin platic one and double zipped it to my mesh. Extremely secure and clean



I imagine a lot of people withthe IPL bumper just fronted the cash for this though:

thanks a lot. $90 is a lot, but my time to make one is not free either so might have to.

Yea, it's a bit pricey and putting one together isn't all that bad but the DIY requires some outside thinking. left a gap between the plate the metal backing which bothered me. tinkered with it for a bit until I went to the bracket above.
