The pic of your bike does help. I would not use a steerer extender on a MTB. (I wouldn't on any bike, but especially a MTB which will be crashed by nature.) A +35 stem doesn't help much when the stem is super short like that.
I would say that you're far enough outside of the bell curve that really you have only two options:
- increase flexibility
always a good thing, for bicycling and general well-being, but it takes a lot of work.
- have a custom frame built
unfortunately, there aren't any FS custom frames that are affordable, that I've ever heard of. tsunami is making hardtail 29ers starting at $800, but I'm guessing you won't want to give up the shock. and some custom jobs end up a nightmare...
