The low profile couplers start at around $55, where the regular ones are $25-$30. The MFL thread fittings for standard couplers are around $5 bucks each, putting the total at $35-$40, cheaper than the low profile coupler starts at.
The only threads I could find regarding converting a low profile coupler only had people putting ball lock disconnects directly onto the coupler, which required 3 or 4 fittings on each side, eventually bringing the total for the conversion upwards of $100.
For what it's worth, after a few more hours of searching, I did stumble on a thread with part #s from McMaster-Carr that should allow me to connect my quick disconnect hoses directly to the coupler with one fitting on each side, so I went with the low profile coupler to save a bit of room. Hopefully the part numbers were right!
