As of right now i've been trying to desperately upgrade my bracers and my ring. For my bracers i've been checking the Auction House for Bracers of Dalaran's Parapets - Item - World of Warcraft but they keep getting so ridiculously high priced i'm really not sure what to do there. As for my ring i'm not really sure either.. I haven't been looking too hard.
I've been constantly running heroics and i've yet to do Naxx and i've been wanting to do it with some of my IRL friends but we never get around to doing it. And to be honest i'm pretty scared about tanking for a PUG.. even as an off-tank because i'll really have no idea whats going on half the time.
EDIT: Just realized after actually looking at my wowhead I need to redo my enchants on my new gear! aye.. i'll get to that tomorrow :P I've been trying to max out my enchanting for my ring enchants as well.

yeah rings a re a pain, bracers as well, easiest way to get them fixed is emblems and naxx. Nowadays naxx runs are far easier and fewer people need the gear. so hop in some pugs and get your stuff that way.
Or be safer easier and more time consuming and get 60 valor emblems and 25 valor emblems for the wrist and ring respectively.
Do the Daily Heroic every day for a couple of weeks until you can buy the ring for Eblems of Triumph. It'll last you a very long time indeed, so is worth it.
Whilst doing the Heroic, chances are you'll stumble upon the Old Kingdom bracers and the ToC ring. If not, you'll by that point have easily enough Conquest badges to pick up the Bracers of Dalaran's Parapets by converting Conquest down to Valor.
While the shiny Tier 9 armor is a temptation, the ring will likely be harder to replace for a long time and as you progress into raiding the Coliseum you'll accumulate badges for the Tier set much quicker anyway.
It'll take 18 Daily Heroics to get the 35 Emblems of Triumph for the ring - set that as your goal and in that time you'll probably net yourself somewhere in the region of 65-70 Emblems of Conquest just from doing the daily, not to mention any other Heroics and Raids you attend in the meantime. By the time you're done, you'll pretty much be geared for Ulduar-10 and Coliseum Normal and can start replacing any of the older stuff with drops from those two places.
It's up to you of course, but I personally find working toward a set goal like that to be fun. Being a new tank now must be great - you can go from quest blues to full epics and be ready to start tackling the latest tier of raids inside of three weeks if you set your mind to it. Best of luck to you
