Respec to Protection?

89 Draenei Paladin
So I'm level 89, and I've decided I'd rather be a Protection Pally than a Retribution... is it far too late for me to make this decision? Obviously I know I'll need a new sword and shield, but once I get those, will I be prepared to switch over?

Sorry if this is an ignorant question, I'm sort of a WoW noob.

You'll be mostly fine. The only stat that Ret uses that Prot doesn't is crit. You can also buy catch-up gear from this guy:

Also if you are concerned about jumping straight into Heroics or do not want to do Regular Dungeons to get the feel of it or a handle on Pally tanking you can "practice" in Scenarios as someone posted in another topic on this site.
