Tranny cooler opinions

I have a stock tranny cooler in my 99 f350. A few years ago I had to replace the radiator. The new radiator came with an oil cooler in the bottom of it so I cut into the lines to the stock tranny cooler and put the radiator cooler in series before the tranny cooler. I'm thinking of getting a 6.0 cooler now. My question is should I keep the radiator cooler.

When I had some work done on my tranny, the guy at the shop eliminated the bottom of the radiator and ran the lines from the old cooler directly to the transmission. When I swapped out my old cooler with the 6.0L cooler, I left it that way. It's been working fine.

Did the tranny shop give a reason for bypassing the radiator cooler?

He said the radiator part had a tendency to plug up over time reducing the flow of fluid, which ends up doing harm to the tranny.
