Default Best and cheapest double tap tower for homemade kegerator?

I am planning on purchasing a Sanyo 4912M and converting it into a kegerator. Can anyone provide a link to where I can purchase the best quality and lowest priced double tap tower kit? I would prefer that the faucets, tap handles, bolts, and rubber ring are included of course.

Thanks!

Sorry guys, not that cheap!

How about this setup from kegconnection.com?

http://stores.kegconnection.com/Detail.bok?no=102

...with the "Upgrade to Perlick Faucets and Homebrew Disconnects" = $143.05 + shipping (around $150)

Is this a nice tower setup for the price? I don't mind spending a bit more for the extra quality (stainless steel tower, Perlick faucets, etc.).

I've had my eye on the same dual tower, I think the guy has a lot of them. Did you get yours already? How do you like it? I have a sanyo with a 2.5" single tower and I'm thinking of picking up that dual tower and trying to mount it on top of my sanyo. I figure for the price and hassle of trying to add another faucet to my 2.5" tower or DIY something for multiple faucets, $85 for something I can just bolt on is a reasonable price.

How long were the beer lines when you received it -- 5 feet? I just emailed Keg Connection to see if I can custom order 10 foot beer lines with the same tower setup.

They come with 5 ft, but I upgraded to 8ft for my Sanyo kegerator.
They will can make almost anything a custom order. Really easy to work with.

"Best and cheapest."

There are two words that seldom go together.
