Will I need to adjust my bindings?

Maybe, but only just a little. The snowboard boot/MadJacks combo is normally a bit longer than the size ski boot you would wear. However, the difference is relatively small and you should only have to adjust your bindings outward a small amount. You should not have to re-mount your bindings.
