Look more carefully at the newfs man page. Option -J (upper case) is 
gjournal type journalling, option -j (lower case) is native UFS soft 
update journalling. It's the latter one you want.

This is on RELEASE-9.1 though. What version are you on?

In the dungeons of Mordor, Sauron bred Orcs with LOLcats to create a
new race of servants. Called Uruk-Oh-Hai in the Black Speech, they
were cruel and delighted in torturing spelling and grammar.
