Because Draw-Tite front mount receiver # 65076 sits low on the 2017 Ford F-250 I recommend looking at bike racks with a rise in the shank for better ground clearance.

The Lets Go Aero BikeWing # B01311 is a great inexpensive option. It weighs just 12 pounds and holds the bikes at the wheels so it is compatible with many bike styles. It has a slight rise in the shank so it will help with ground clearance without blocking the driver's view too much. I have linked a video review of this rack for you.

If you want to carry more than 2 bikes I recommend a hanging rack such as the Swagman Trailhead # S63380. Hanging racks will hold the bikes closer together than a platform rack. They also weigh much less. The Trailhead has a rise in the shank too and features anti-sway cradles to keep the bikes from swinging while you drive. I have linked a video review of this bike rack as well.
