Default T bar crank questions

how much does it cost for the key and everything to do it yourself?
how do you do it yourself?
how much would it cost to have done for you?
how much of a Tbar crank would you need to fit 285 75 16s?

Thanks
Sanders

Torsion keys are pointless because you get the same for free, by cranking your torsion bars.
