No, no need to go to a 4 link purely for outboarding. To answer the question, yes, I've outboarded many TJ and TJ Unlimiteds. There is no difference in the relationship between anything that matters between the two.
When I do them, I make a new trackbar mount that attaches back in the same spot, just on the inside of the new shock mount. I don't like leaving the stock one in place, so I remove it intact and then make a new one.
