    HS9500 has a remote soleniod pack and the HS9500i has solenoids integrated into the loop over the spool.

    With the "i" the selonid pack is mounted over the drum, the other will be required to be mounted elsewhere. I don't know how else to explain it other than go to your local 4WD store and look at them.

    The pic didnt work for the HS9500, but when i looked at the bottom i noticed the HS9500 doesnt have the bridge over the Cable, Mine has that bridge, like the pictures of the HS9500i, but on my winch it doesnt say "i" on there, hmmmmm

    There now i got the pic to work, Mine looks exacatally like the "i" hmm, but it only says HS9500 on it, wierd.

    If you have the "bridge" w/ the selonids mounted in it then its the "i". Both winches are the same so they may share a common label.

    I like the hs9500 more than the "I" version. Without the solenoid pack on the winch you can put it somewhere where it will stay dry (which will help it last longer) and it will block less air from getting to your radiator...it is also cheeper.
