For 5th wheel rails on your 2017 Ford F-350, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50074-58 which is a confirmed fit bracket and rail kit for your truck. These are the 43 inch long rails, so you don't need the longer rails based on your truck. We don't have just the brackets available for this model year yet outside of the kit.

If you want the longer rails, you can get the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56017-53 which is also a custom fit for your truck. These are the 48 inch rails that are easier to install due to their length.

Both rails sets will give you industry standard rails compatible with B&W, Curt, Demco Hijacker Premier Series, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above-bed 5th-wheel trailer hitches as well as some others. If you want a hitch for this new truck, I recommend the Reese 22K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30033 because of its dual jaws for secure king pin contact for reduced jarring and chucking. I've attached a video review of this hitch for you.
