Where to cut shower drain?


Hello everyone. I've decided to replace a fiberglass shower pan with a mud set pan in our walk-in shower so I will need to put a new drain in. My question is, should I go ahead and cut the plumbing past the trap and replace all of it, or just cut right below the drain and re-use the trap. I haven't gotten a look at the trap yet, but it seems like I may want to put a new one in while I am there regardless. Thoughts?

Ayuh,.... I guess I'd make that decision after I got eyes on it,.....

I don't replace plumbin', just because, but because I have to, to fit the new environment,...
Or,...
After ya see it, it might be a clusterf*#%, 'n needs changin' to make it Right,...

Drains are cheap. Even the expensive ones only run into about 40-50 bucks. I would just replace the whole thing, but settin eyes on it would help loads.
