adding outdoor receptacle


I'm finishing the open walls in my garage but taking the opportunity to add an exterior receptacle first. I have vinyl J-block to trim out the hole in the siding, an outdoor in-use receptacle cover, and a WR/TR duplex receptacle. The circuit is already GFCI protected. Can I use a regular plastic junction box?
