Default Can I take out the A/C radiator?

I have to change out my radiator due to a leak. There is an A/C radiator in front of the coolant radiator. Can I take the A/C radiator out for good when I change the collant radiator? The rest of the A/C system is already out with the exception of the A/C pump that is tied into the serpentine belt.

Well, if you're not using it, take it out. However, I don't see that it's bothering anything. It may just keep a rock or something from drilling a hole in your radiator.

Wuss, then I must be super-Wuss, I grew up in Dallas,TX, where AC in a car/truck was not an option, you couldn't live without it. Now I live in NC and need AC about four months a year, but want AC about 11 months a
