Default Rolling igloo Draft Box Question

A question for those of you that have made the rolling kegerator out of the 70 quart Igloo Ice Cube.

What size shanks did you use? It looks like I've got 1.5 inches of ice chest walls to deal with so will a 2" shank be long enough?

Where did you buy your shanks. Where did you buy the elbow nipple?

Thanks!

I think I used 3-4" shanks cus I took them from my keezer. No elbow was needed just the regular shank & tailpiece . Got everything from Kegconnection.com


I dont think I ordered the 2" ones cus I really didnt know if they would be long engouh since the tail piece nut takes about 3/4 " of it . I'd go with 3" to be safe.
