I did not intend to publish this build yet. However, I hit the publish button out of pure habit, so here it is. Please keep in mind that the guide is not entirely finished.
I apologize for this, and congrats to you for getting a sneak peak.
THIS BUILD IS NOT FOR NEW PLAYERS. THERE IS NO SIMPLE ALGORITHM OR STEP-BY-STEP PROCESS TO JUNGLING WITH RENEKTON. I CAN ALSO GIVE NO GUARANTEES THAT YOU WILL HAVE SUCCESS WITH ALTERNATE MASTERIES OR RUNE SETS.
That being said. Jungle Renekton is a fun challenge, and I encourage everyone to give it a try! :)
Example Game Scores
Here's a few examples of some games playing Renekton this style. The 11/9/17 was a very long game, with a Trynd who went 2/14. >.< You can see I needed a lot of Magic Resist (they had a Veigar and Vladimir who were pretty decent) and I ended up replacing Wriggle's Lantern with Bloodthirster.

Jungling Rules & Facts
#1 Jungling with Renekton is hard work. Renekton is not the easiest champion to jungle with by any means, and you will struggle with it at first. It took me approximately 5 games to get a good consistent jungling method.
#2 Do not die, never die. It is better to have to run from jungle mobs, go back and heal up and come back fresh than to die. Jungling with Renekton is going to be sluggish until level 4 and/or getting your
Madred's Razors. You won't fall behind in levels and if you do a little bit, you'll more than make up for it as the game progresses.
#3 Helping your lanes is a must. Renekton is a great jungle/ganker and as such, consistently helping your allies lanes (especially when they need it) is an absolute must. This pretty much goes for all jungling, but especially with Renekton. Renekton is not a typical jungle fiend, and so you must validate yourself.
#4 The best skill order for jungling is Slice > Cull the Meek > Dice > Ruthless Predator at 50+ Fury. This skill order will give you the most damage output in the quickest time possible. If your Fury gets to 50+ always Ruthless Predator if available.
Build Order for Jungle Renekton
The build order for Jungle Renekton is pretty restrictive until your 6th item, and an item to replace Wriggle's Lantern. Most of the time I recommend picking up
Bloodthirster as your 6th item. However, if you feel that you need more survivability, purchase accordingly. When replacing Wriggle's Lantern be sure that you are replacing the lost life-steal if you haven't already done so.
30 Armor, 23 Attack Damage, 14 Life Steal. UNIQUE Passive: 20% chance on attack to deal 500 damage to a minion. UNIQUE Active: Places an invisible ward with 1100 range sight and lasts for 3 minutes. 3 minute cooldown.
Wriggle's Lantern is a great low cost jungling item that gives the lifesteal that you need while also allowing you to dominate the jungle. It's low cost allows you to move on to items that are far more important than trying to get a Madred's Bloodrazor.
Ionian Boots of Lucidity
UNIQUE Passive: Enhanced movement 2. UNIQUE Passive: Reduces all ability cooldowns by 15%.
These boots will put you on your way to getting 39.3% cooldown reduction. The cooldown reduction is my only reason for selecting these boots.
30 Attack Damage, 15 Critical Strike Chance. UNIQUE Passive: +20 Armor Penetration 15% Cooldown Reduction. UNIQUE Active: You gain +20% movespeed and +50% attack speed for 4 seconds. Attack Enemy units with melee attacks increases the duration by 2 to a maximum of 8.
Youmuu's Ghostblade is considerably more valuable on Renekton than I would have ever anticipated. Initially, I chose it primarily for the cooldown reduction. However, this item will help you dish out a lot of damage on your enemies, escape when you need to, and chase down runners when you must.
68 Armor, 38 Magic Resist. UNIQUE Passive: Revives your Champion upon death, restoring 750 Health and 350 Mana, this effect can only occur once every 5 minutes.
As a non-tank melee champion, you will find this item to be extremely valuable. First and foremost, the armor and magic resist will help make you a little more beefy. Second, you'll find yourself move lower on the "MUST ATTACK" list because they know that if they kill you first, you'll just be back in a a couple seconds. Third and finally, when you die with the revive buff on and your ultimate is active, you revive with your ultimate active again keeping you even more beefy. Guardian Angel has saved me many many times, and gotten me extra kills.
20 Attack Damage, 700 Health. UNIQUE Passive: Physical attacks reduce your target's Movement Speed for 2.5 seconds.
A Frozen Mallet will assist you greatly in killing squishies who like the flee, and protect your squishy allies by given enemy dps a hit for reduced movement speed. 20 Extra damage isn't anything to scoff at either and will assist every one of your abilities with more killing Power.
