Depends what ELO bracket you are in, but stonewall rated Nunu as one of the best junglers in Ranked, assuming you have a team that has even the slightest bit of awareness.

In lower ELO brackets, Shaco is always a good choice because of his strong & safe counterjungling, his early game ganking power, and his significant damage output. The caveat here though, is that you need to be familiar with his set, and what to build to yield the highest amount of damage:survivability output. You should ask your Solotop to be a tanky initiator like Malphite, and try to save your Ambush for when you start getting focused. Definately practice some games jungling as shaco before trying ranked with him.

Finally, Nocturne is a bit pricey as far as champions go, but he has some of the best ganks i've seen. His pre-6 jungling is pretty good, his spell shield gives him some survivability/extra initiating power (for lane ganks). Oh, did i mention that your ult Paranoia can give you some of the best & most unpredictable ganks? Oh, guess not ;)

Amumu if you can pick him. Just mind not getting your blue stolen.

I don't know what everyone else thinks about this but Hecarim does me well in solo Q, decent clear time and OK ganks after level 6, and if someone pushes a lane in your favor that gives him a good situation to. Not the best pre 6 ganks because if an opponent doesn't push the lane there isn't a bunch he can do.

Amumu is great for his ulti. Just make sure you have vision on your buffs, because he's prone to being counterjungled.

Skarner is also awesome, and his pre-6 ganks are still pretty deadly. After 6 it's almost a guaranteed kill.

Lee Sin is just amazing. He can counterjungle, juke, gank...he's just a bundle of awesome, but it takes time to master him.

Nocturne has a fast clear time, and his pre-6 ganks are pretty good, but they usually only end in summoner spell burns, not kills, until level 6.

Maokai is also a great jungler. I dunno a lot about him though, sorry.

One bad thing, however, is that all of these are 6300 IP, except Amumu (1350) and Maokai (4800).

Thanks to jhoijhoi and LaCorpse for the amazing sigs!

Shyvana is one of the best junglers (best imo)and shes so versatile while doing tons of damage in any phase of the game, only bad side is that she doesnt have any CC except for the knockback of her ulti so her ganks have no room for errors but exhaust fixes it all! People should learn to ban her

Skarner has awesome ganks and his ulti makes him really scary along with his op lategame

Nocturne ganks from nowhere srsly, everything turns dark then you hear DAAARRRKNEEEESSS "an enemy has been slain" really good damage output

Udyr is almost as fast as shyvana jungling and his ganks are decent with his stun with good damage/defense.

Lee Sin just what they mentioned before

Dr Mundo fast clear speed and decent ganker but relies on landing his cleaver, very good tank

Amumu already mentioned

Shen good clear speed, awesome ganks FROM NOWHERE with his global presence and one of a hell tank lategame
Gave you a good laugh or helped? rep+ so i can know ;)

Thanks to TinyStar, Jhoi, Xiaowi, Virus, Bard and Arcana(eww)...for my signatures!

Elohell is like Irelia's stun: if your real level is equal or lower than the level you are in, you're STUNNED there forever. If your actual level is higher than the level you are in, you're just SLOWED in your way up.

Cheap and banned.

My personal favorites atm (of other people using) are amumu and hecarim.
Syringes with my mid cho very well in ganks.
So much utility and tankiness late game.
