Because this is an extra vehicle, it has been sitting in my garage for over a year. I'm sure the battery will have to be jumped, and replaced, and the tires are all low. An oil change, I'm sure is in order, but what else should I have done so that the truck can be driven again, and sold?
Do you

Sounds like you have everything covered. Maybe add a fuel filter and air filter. Also check in airbox to make sure we have no mouse nests, other than that your ok. **Be sure to charge battery or replace, dont jump start a totally dead battery, when you take off the jumpers you can damage alternator trying to charge dead battery. Hope this helps

I guess I should have mentioned that it hasn't even been started. So is there anything I have to do before I start it? I want to be cautious, and not cause any damage. (Especially in case I decide to sell it.)
