Pulling Jeep out of storage...what needs done?

Hey so I pulled a dumba$$ move and didn't really properly store my Jeep when I parked it a couple months ago. I was in a hurry the day I put it in storage and all that was done was top off the tank with gas completely, complete wash/wax, pull the battery cable, and park it on some 2x6's in a sealed shed. I've stored two previous vehicles for about six months apiece before, and had always added Sea Foam to the oil and gas tank. However, I neglected to do that this time due to time. What do I need to do when i pull it out of storage besides change the oil? Should I add a can of Sea Foam to the tank of gas still in it? Or should i syphon the tank? any suggestions would be appreciated!

Just start it up and like you do normally, put seafoam. You don't need to replace anything.
