New to pally tanking, need advice
Thanks for taking the time to read my post!

My paladin has only been 80 for around 3 weeks, though I have a similarly geared 80 prot warrior I've been tanking on since wow-classic, so I'm just a little unclear on a few paladin-specific things. My questions are:
1 - My primary concern, as odd as this sounds coming from a paladin, is threat... especially with the minor nerfs that came today. I feel like I'm the only pally that has trouble with this honestly, but I can't figure out quite what I might be doing wrong. I hear so much about how awesome pally threat is, but my warrior puts my pally to shame so far, how can I improve this? Rotation is standard 696 stuff... I usually open with sotr, judge, hotr, hs, sotr, consecrate, hotr, judge and so on....
example: On 10m heroic last night I was main tanking anub and hovered usually around 4-5k tps with dips as low as 2k and spikes as high as 6k. I'd say average is 4.5k. Maybe this is an issue with the stun? Either way, I believe our dps were having to back off a bit and we were barely getting him to leech before the second submerge so I'd definitely like to improve in this area.
2 - Is there anything wrong with my gemming and enchanting? If so, any suggestions for imporvement?
3 - Is there anything wrong with my gearing? I'm not unhittable without redoubt, I'm not sure if that's an issue or not, perhaps I should push for more block rating or avoidance? Any upgrades I missed that might be easily obtainable?
4 - Glyphs/Talents, I'm really uncertain in this category. Is glyphing salvation a good choice or should I go with something else? Is divine sacrifice a good idea as a pally tank, how many situations arise where I can utilize this considering I'm primarily an offtank? Is improved HoJ useful? I copied this off one of the top pally tanks on my server for lack of any better ideas for the point usage, but I can't seem to see it's value, any other suggestions?
I am primarily tanking toc 10/25 normal/heroic, always offtank, if that helps any.
