I would recommend 3 addons:

1. Tidy Plates - as Scorp mentioned.

2. Weak Auras - use Theck's strings.

here is a post on how to do imports http://www.icy-veins.com/forums/topic/1767-weak-auras-trying-to-understand/

here is thecks page with strings. just use his links to Prot - Priority Row and Prot - Cooldowns Row http://www.sacredduty.net/2013/03/08/patch-5-2-weakauras-configurations/

3. CLCProt - this is a rotation aid just like CLCinfo or CLCRet. Here is a link on my priority strings http://www.icy-veins.com/forums/topic/1856-clcprot/

One I came across that has been helpful for dungeons is TauntMaster http://www.curse.com...wow/tauntmaster

Gives you a button to click on to auto taunt off your group members rather than trying to target them directly. Simple click and done. Also works for warrior intervene, kinda like a healbot for tanks.

I also use Tidyplates with Threatplates and spellflash for rotations.

I actually have a separate Skada Meter window for threat and  simply look at that. It's probably not the best but it's interesting on non-tanks and useful to  some extent on my tanks.
