Replacing a Tub/Shower combo

My current Tub/Shower combo is cracked and leaking. I am looking into replacement. My question is do you have to cut out the sheetrock around the exisiting tub to get it out and then replace after new one is installed? I noticed when i was at the store there is a 2" lip around the tub that looks like it should go behind the sheeetrock. Thanks for the Help!!!!!!

I have always replaced the sheetrock from the top of the surround all the way to the ceiling, rather than trying to repair a cut just above the surround's wall. Much easier to finish, and you get a better looking finished job. If you will be using sheetrock above the tub, make sure it is the MR type (greenboard).
