Leveling as a tank.

Hey paladin community, I was thinking about leveling up my paladin (he's at 80 right now.) and he has been a tank for a while. Buuuut, with the obviously better gear in cata, I was wondering, should I go ahead and quest through a zone and get quest greens before I jump into the dungeons?
I asked my guild the same thing and they said no. I did the first instance (BC) last night in my ICC gear from 7 months ago and rocked it fine, got three blue upgrades. Much better than quest greens :)

Someone on Tank Spot was nice enough to list all the pre-heroic tanking gear, as well as where to get it.

Honestly I'd quest first, you're going to want the rep from the new zones.
