Default Wierd Trans Issue.... Any Ideas?

Truck is 98 Ram 1500 5.2 Auto. Seems to surge anytime I am steady (light throttle). RPM raises about 500 then lowers and repeats. Runs fine under acceleration. Is it possible the converter is unlocking, seems to happen at all speeds. I haven't seen this one before. Any ideas where to start checking?

Converter unlocking is possible. You'd need a scan tool to view the data stream to check it.

What type of scan tool would this require? I have a pc based tool that gives me access to o2 sensors, temps, fuel trims, etc. But I haven't seen any trans info.
