Back From Deployment....Trucks Been Sitting for 6 Months

I'll be returning from deployment in the beginning of July and I'm just curious what I need to do to my truck when I get back and start driving it again. It has been sitting since I left in January and before I left I changed the oil, put fuel stabilizer in the tank and covered it up. I've had to leave my other vehicle sitting while I've been on deployment before but this is my first Diesel so I'm just curious if theres anything more to do other than put fresh oil in the engine, air the tires, and get some fresh fuel in it. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Rob

I'd change the oil, filters, etc and fire it up!
Thanks for your service.

You should have let you oil drain while you were gone.
