Since my 5.1.1 iPhone4 is jailbroken, do I need to anything before I restore in iTunes or is it safe just to restore without changing anything?

I am selling my phone tomorrow and would like to return it to stock state.

Nope, you can just restore it as new. Don't restore from back up just set it up as new or leave it at the set up screen. If you're getting a phone other than an iPhone, turn off iMessage before you restore it.

Just restore it in iTunes then make sure to wipe it clean:
Go to Settings>General>Reset>Erase All Contents & Settings.
That will bring it back to factory original....

While that would normally work, that procedure will not work on a jailbroken iphone. You must restore via itunes. Erase all content and settings will freeze the device and you have to restore in itunes anyway.

If you read my original post I said FIRST restore it in iTunes...
