It'll probably be 1.50 or 1.25. Looks more like 1.50 pitch but not positive. I have thread pitch gauge in the garage but I've sold my Fn2 :smile3:
M.8 or M10 size? Measure the width of the bolt to make sure. You can take it to somewhere like screwfix and ask to compare to something longer they have in stock.

Doesn't the triangle fit inside the bumper anyway?

remove a wheel nut and compare it to that
1 thing for sure it will be bigger than M 8 that was sugested before
if there same diamiter as the tow loop bolt there m12 it the tow bolt is bigger probably its m14
then you just have to worry about the pitch
standard pitch is 1.5
but slight chance it might be a coarse pitch to make it quicker to thread up

cant help with the bolt size, but make sure it's tucked inside the bumper somehow. Sunlight will weaken the webbing so when you need to rely on it, sods law it'll tear (a good few years down the line).
