Hello, so i dont know much about pickups. I want this kind of 90's skatepunk sound like, No Use For A Name, Lagwagon, blink-182 (Dide Ranch era), pennywise etc etc. What kind of humbuckers should i buy for my guitar to get that sound?. I play on a Orange Crush 35 LDX amp.

I am very grateful if anyone has a good answer

You might want to play with your rig before doing anything drastic to your guitar. Get a good dirtbox. Most of the punk/skater/ska scene guys have a old beater guitar going into a simple solid state amp and a hi gain distortion pedal for their tone. Lots of highs and mids. Hate to say it but the Orange is almost too rich for that haha.
Gibson RD Silverburst w/ Lace Dissonant Aggressors (SOLD)
Electra Omega Prime Ceruse
Fender Franken-Jag Bass

Amps and the like:
Laney VH100R
Seismic Luke 2x12
Dunlop 105Q Wah
Gojira FX 808
Line 6 M9

What you really need is a new amp.

No, seriously, it may help.
For punk your amp isn't even bad so you may consider getting a distortion pedal as suggested, it'll probably help you more than pickups, though a good distortion pedal plus a nice new amp will do punk just fine with more or less whatever guitar.

What's your guitar anyway?

Right now iam am using a Harley Benton Es, and it isnt that good. I have had it for three years and now i want to get a Fender Blacktop. So i guess i should plan my gear for that guitar then? My sound right now is okey but it is a little to "crunchy" for my style.

A used Marshall JCM2000 DSL401 combo will do that music just fine. The newer Marshall DSL40c is worth a look also. I grew-up listening to skate/surf punk in the 90's. Those guys were mostly using Marshall,Mesa and Peavey amps, and they were not SS they were tube amps.

Blink 182 are local boys. Here is a look at Tom's rig. He uses a pretty wide variety of stuff so just pick a decent tube amp, put a dirt pedal in front, use the bridge pickup and wail. I'd probably go for a Tiny Terror or Vox AC 15 with an OCD or Fulltone pedal but lots of choices.

It should work just fine for gig's. You may find that eventually you want a bigger/thicker sound and that amp will allow you to add an extension cab like another 1x12 cab. It will even power a 4x12 cab just fine
