Removing power steering cooler... ok or stupid

The power steering cooler on my '98 Ranger is leaking. The cooler is both hard to get and expensive. I am pretty sure the cooler was part of the towing package and not standard.

I am contemplating just removing the cooler and bypassing it. I don't tow with the truck. I very very rarely have any sort of load in the box. I believe the most was 800 pounds of rocks once.

R/R with something cheaper. It doesn't need to be original equipment. Use a small transmission cooler. Don't get rid of it with a bypass.
