Bath tubs are very hard to replace. I would call a plumber on this one myself.
I have changed out a lot of bath tubs in my 40 years of Plumbing. And they are
not easy at all. If you do try, i would only do so if you had all walls down around
tub. And always change your trip waste and if you have a drum trap, always
remove it also. And replace with ( P ) trap. If you already have a ( P ) trap they
hardly ever seem to match up to new tub. And always install new faucet.
Most likely if you try, you will be calling plumber. So save yourself time by doing so at the first. Expect to pay a plumber and helper around 2,500.00 just for
labor. To install all that i have mentioned w/walls already being down. At least
you can save yourself money on walls being down. Hope you take my advice
on this one.

take out the drywall (2 x 1/2") and you have 59"
Depends on the siZe of the bathtub and where you want the plumbing to be. And you need to make sure there is electrical outlet for the jets. But if u can fit everything in. Then it u just need the room for that
you can find that very well online as well as from classified advertise or yellow pages. generally all the workers associated with the bathtub services do the service for handicap bathtubs as well.
