Diff cross pin not fitting... grind teeth or wrong parts?

Hi guys,

can't seem to find a definite answer on google. seen that it's not uncommon to have to grind a bit off the teeth to clear a pin. i have a 98 TJ, going from stock 3.07 to 4.56

i ordered the all yukon parts, new carrier to accommodate the higher tier of gearing and ring/pinion.

my question is, can any of you tell me if perhaps yukon sent me the wrong stuff in the packages or does it look correct and that i just need to grind some teeth? The ring does look a little fat, but not really thick, thick gear...

X2. A lot of guys grind a bit off the heel, but I seriously dislike that resolution.
