You seem to be on the low side of HP, and being that you are picking up the frost belt I have to ask which other pieces you have/are looking to get. (Can't see the armory)

One thing you'll want to look at is how much HP and Armor you have, as most damage in ICC is physical and these two stats will become the most important for you.

You are going to get hit pretty dang hard. You're more than welcome to drop in and try it if you want, but I would highly recommend farming some triumph badges for t9 first. You're sporting a lot of ilevel 200 gear, and I'd say you're an Ulduar geared tank. Again, I'd recommend a week of triump badge farming, icc 5 mans, toc 10/25 and then you could jump into 10 man icc. Put in an antisocial weekend and you could probably tank it at the next reset. Stat priority will be (def to uncritable), armor, stamina, defense over uncritable..

Everything crutchs said and I'd say you're just about ready when you dont need to gem or enchant for defense.

ive got the frost belt now + a icc10 mace off marrowgar and i now have 37k unbuffed
i tanked the first 2 bosses in icc10 last night and that went ok
ive gotta get the 75 eot helm that gives me a load more armour, def rating, dodge but i do loose some stamina.. (can be fixed with the + 30 stam gem and +32 stam and 2% armour meta)

I hope i can have 38-40k hp for the next reset

Its just all of the gs addicted noobs who say you need 5k+ gs to join, ive got 4.6k gs now tho

If money isn't an issue (primordial saronite is at 250g/each and titansteel bar at 80g/each on our mid pop server), get yourself
Breastplate of the White Knight http://www.wowhead.com/item=47591
Saronite Swordbreakers http://www.wowhead.com/item=47571
Boots of Kingly Upheaval http://www.wowhead.com/item=49907
Pillars of Might http://www.wowhead.com/item=49904

If you don't want to throw away some money for a decent ilvl upgrade, get yourself into those 5 man icc heroics:
head http://www.wowhead.com/item=50311 (http://www.wowhead.com/item=50311)
feet http://www.wowhead.com/item=50215
chest http://www.wowhead.com/item=50285
neck http://www.wowhead.com/item=50310

I'm still wearing the badges ring ( http://www.wowhead.com/item=47731 ) and the badges helmet (http://www.wowhead.com/item=47677 ) is pretty decent, too.

With the help of some guildies, you could farm the first two bosses of HoR normal mode for cloak ( http://www.wowhead.com/item=49835 ) and shield upgrade ( http://www.wowhead.com/item=49832 ).

Lasty, i did recommend Tuskarr enchant for you feet instead of 22 stamina. -7 stamina for additional runspeed is almost always worth it.

If you're worried about GS, get yourself some pvp pieces. They have TONS of stamina and you'll need way less defense* to become crit immun.
feet http://www.wowhead.com/item=40884 (+61 stamina gemmed)
wrist http://www.wowhead.com/item=51364 (+51 stamina gemmed properly)
cloak http://www.wowhead.com/item=51356 (+61 stamina)

* opening up regemming and enchanting some other pieces of your gear like chest, shield, pants etc
