1) Gear: Get over 540 defense using SSG rune. Then work on the highest ILVL gear you can reasonably get (this usually means all of the conquest/valor gear). Enchant the gear correctly (you can def. find this info on these forums).
2) Gems: If over 540 defense gem for stamina (+30 stam gems), if under gem for defense. Some people like socket bonuses, some people don't - it's your personal preference.
3) Start with the 5/8/5 spec. Then pick your favorite/coolest tree and spec 50 points into it. Glyph it logically. (examples can be found all over the forums)
4) Rotation: keep diseases up, RP dump at 100 RP
Yes, I know all of that I should have worded my post a little. I have been tanking in WOTLK since it came out. I'm not a horrible tank you can tell by looking at my gear i'm in a really good guild. What I'm asking for is some help on little tweaks that can make me a little better then I am. Such as I have made some hit gems because my hit isn't where it needs to be. I would love to just gem all stam gems but I can't and stay hit capped
Something you might look into is getting the axe from hodir 10man that has hit on it. It should get you hit capped. Also i would look into getting the gloves from the emblems of conq. They have hit but you do loose a socket for 30stam. Haha. if your really hurting ask your rl to put you in a group with a dreani (1%hit) Just a suggestion. Also your gear looks good.
In your spec. Why did you pick up lichborne? It doesnt give you 20%dodge anymore so it is almost useless in tanking (except for certain fights like auryia). Also i dont know if icy talons procs off of glyph of disease, but if it doesnt i would look to put those talents elsewhere. (3/3 ravenous dead and 2/3 subversion)
Just a few suggestions
