Replaced my Cracked Radiator

My original radiator finally got a hairline crack on top of the plastic tank. It gave me 130,000 miles of service which seems good for being in a Jeep that gets twisted on occasion. I replaced it with another one from NAPA. Easy job.

I think i paid like 180 at advance auto but it's all f***ed up now. Like the fins are bent from various encounters with fan shroud, t stat replacement and such. It still works and keeps my jeep at 210. Is there any point in replacing it again just because some fins are messed up even though it still works?
