Depends on what you mean by shudder....I would try to diagnose this by figuring out if the symptoms occur under engine load or just at a specific speed. An engine in need of a tune up can feel like it has a vibration when under load. An easy way to determine this is to get to a speed where overdrive has kicked in, then let the truck slow down just before overdrive kicks out. Slowly roll on some throttle to try to accelerate. If this is the sort of condition that produces the vibration or shudder, it's likely that it's a case of worn tune-up items.

Now, if you get the shudder when accelerating in only a specific gear or a specific speed, it could be a driveline issue.

When was the last time that the truck was tuned up, including plugs, plug wires, and cap/rotor (if applicable)?
