Default G.E. 5.7 Cu. Ft Kegerator Conversion

Has anyone done a kegerator conversion with this type of fridge?

GE 5.7 Cu Ft:

My main concern is that is looks short and wide/deep.

Hard to tell if it's deep enough for a keg. Looks like there's no compressor hump. So, the cooling unit is up in the freezer area. If it's not tall enough, the cooling coils might need to be moved, that can't always be done easily.

Anyone tried this yet? How easy will the freezer fold down?

This one won't be tall enough because of the freezer compartment. Also, there is a compressor hump in the back. It's hard to see but it's just below the bottom shelf and goes all the way across the back.
