The "thick" gears are to be used with a lower series carrier. Some differentials require a new differential to position the ring gear closer to the pinion (as the pinion head gets smaller for numerically higher gear ratios and thus moves away from the ring gear surface). The "thick" gears allow you to use the same carrier by using the extra material on the bottom of the ring gear to move the tooth side of the gear closer to the pinion.
