Question Installing outlets in shallow wall

I live in a 1968 mobile home permanently attached to a concrete block foundation. I wish to install additional outlets in the bathroom (GFCI), but the walls are only 2 inches thick (apparently 2x2 inch studs) and I have been unable to find boxes shallow enough to use in this situation. Any suggestions?

There are old work boxes available in 1", 2", 2", & 2" depths. Use the deepest one you can get away with, if " sheetrock the 2" should work. You may need to use a GFCI breaker as a GFCI receptacle will be too tight a squeeze.
