In order to determine how much drop you need, you will measure from the top inside edge of your trailer hitch receiver on your 2017 Ford F-250 to the ground. Then you will measure from the ground to the bottom of your trailer coupler when it is level. The difference between these measurements is the drop you need. I've attached an article to assist and have linked 3 inch ball mount options.

I personally recommend the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount - 3" Hitch -7-1/2" Drop, 7" Rise - 21K - Black # BWTS30040B. This ball mount is adjustable, comes with the integrated hitch ball options of 2 inch diameter or 2-5/16 inches, and has the ability to stow behind the shank for a clean look. This protects your shins from accidentally making contact when loading or unloading cargo from your truck bed. I also recommend using a hitch lock like # WS05 to secure your investment.
