New radiator...Still need external tranny cooler??

Just installed a new radiator on my 1999 4runner. It has 189XXX miles on it. No signs off any problems with the fluids mixing and starting the "milkshake". My question is, with a new radiator installed, how worried should I be about the milkshake happening to me? I would like to eventually do it when money and time permits, but i figured with a brand new radiator my chances of it happening are slim. Any input is appreciated.
