No.

Only moving your axle by means of suspension or moving the TC will change the angle.

Just keep an eye on it and pay attention for vibes. 4" is right at the grey area for needing one...

Your sig says 4" of suspension. Body lift will not effect your driveline angels at all.

it wont vibe at lights man
if you will have driveline vibes it happens when the jeep is in motion

most cases people will have vibes occur at certain speeds or full time

Vibes mean that your rear u-joint is at too much of an angle and the u-joint wants to bind up,causing heat,friction and vibes.I read about vibes cracking t-tcases.

do you have 5" total lift or 5" suspension lift?

or a 4" suspension and a 1" bodylift?

I suggest a motormount lift just in case,a motormount lift can reduce vibes by slightly decreasing the rear driveline angle
