Has anyone ever done this???

I would like to convert my brinly cultivator over to tow behind so I can avoid the whole sleeve hitch deal...

Anyone have the usual good ideas?

Can be done, but why?
Bolt on a pair of runners 2" up (or wheels) should work
You'll fight to get your pull geometry right, then it will change with changing soil conditions
Dryness rocks Etc

What is prohibiting you from hooking it up with a sleeve hitch?

No sleeve hitch tractors to be found, the cost of a sleeve hitch assembly is very prohibitive. Cost for a john deere sleeve hitch for my 300 is nearly what I payed for the tractor...

Around here, you can find a set of drag harrows (old horse pulled units) easier than you would think.

If you could find an old DB cultivator you could either use it or take the wheels along with the adjusters & bar  ( the whole rear bar adjusts to width ) and bolt it on this way you could tow it , set the depth and when your ever get a sleeve hitch you .  Here's a picture of mine , this one wouldn't be as handy because it's the crank adjust type , all my others have notches to adjust
