Oil Coolers needed for under 3000 lbs?

New potential DCSB 4x4 Tacoma owner here.
Given that I may never tow or only tow 1000-2000 lbs, do I want the supplemental oil and tranny coolers?
Not sure if its an option with TRD Sport but I would rather NOT have more equipment to break/maintain than I really need. Does that stuff add weight, impede access to other things, need fluid changing...etc?

Nothing changes as far as maintenance goes. Even not towing they are nice to have.
