Hit 80 on my first tank about 2 weeks ago and just now have accumulated enough frost badges to buy something. Here's my char:

I'm thinking the biggest bang would come from http://www.wowhead.com/item=50356 and matching it up with http://www.wowhead.com/item=47735, to replace my old JC trinkets, but it will probably be a couple weeks before I can get enough badges for another upgrade, so I'd appreciate some advice from some more experienced tanks. Thanks.

The cloak is the best upgrade, hands down it is actually for tanking and is not gonna get replaced till you roll into 25man hard icc.

as for trinkets may i be so kind as to show you

it is a drop from normal ToC 5 man dungeon so you can use the LFD tool to manually que until it drops. That paired with the glyph will last quite a while i think. That cloak is just leaps and bounds above what you have

After 50+ runs in reg ToC 5 without seeing that damn trinket, I'm convinced it's a myth... But, I agree the cloak is a another area where I need significant upgrade. Would it make sense to put a straight stamina gem in it, or should I look at getting the socket bonus too?

Druids should go for set pieces first. Even though the trinket or cloak is probably a larger individual upgrade, the set bonuses can not be ignored. You can find alternative trinkets or cloaks in different content for the time being.

In the case of feral you should be getting everything but the chest and using the BoE chest I believe. Once you have your shoulders, helm, legs and gloves (legs and gloves likely last since you have a chance of getting them from VoA) then you can start looking at spending your Emblems of Frost on other pieces.
