Ordered a sleeve hitch cast lift lever from RF Houtz and got it mounted. Had to grab a bolt, washers, and nylon bushing from local Hardware Hank. Also made the top pin out of 1/2" zinc rod, 2 hitch pins and 2 washers.

I am now looking (casually) for a brinly adapter and 1"x4" pin. Thinking that I might fabricate a 5 gallon bucket lifter/holder too.

Any other DIY fabricated sleeve hitch and/or Brinly attachments?

I have photos of some that I have saved over the years. I'll have to search my archives and see what I can dig up. For starters there's Ed Stillions "Invisible Fence Installer"

While not a rear lift attachment, this rear weight and rear work light that David Kirk made, might be of interest:

Again not a rear lift attachment but an interesting cheap rear weight or "carryall" design. Not sure who made this one:

Sorry but here's another non-rear lift attachment. I've always been intrigued by this quick attach carry-all that John Proeschel made. It just rolls under the tractor using what appears to be a caster wheel of some sort and has a pin that drops into the drawbar holding it in place, so simple:

How about a wrecker bar? I believe Travis Schweizer made this one:
