AE or scanner?

Hey do any of yall in the midtenn area have AE or a scan tool that you'd be willing to help me out with? My truck has got a hesitation/shudder happening at low RPMs and usually around 40-45mph that i'm trying to figure out and I don't have a way to check for codes or anything. I thought it might be the transmission but it shifts fine so i'm leaning a little more towards an injector issue possibly but i'm far from a mechanic so it's just a guess. It's an 01 with 135K and stock except for intake and exhaust. I know i'm new here and don't know anybody so I understand if you don't want to help out a stranger, i just didn't want to go throw a bunch of money at a dealership so I thought i'd ask. Any advice as to what yall think it might be would also be appreciated. Thanks, Matt

Mine shudders at exactly those speeds when it's time to rotate and balance the tires. If that's not the case, I have AE, and need to use it more often to justify buyin it... Lemme know.

Thanks chvyrkr! I talked to dave over at swamps and when i described it to him he said he was pretty sure it was an injector so I think I may just go over there and have them take a look. If i change my mind i'll let you know. Thanks again for the offer, i really appreciate it.
