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.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)

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.
