The EX's have climbed a bit in value the last year or two over book (at least good ones in Texas have done so). A friend just bought an '03 , 7.3L w/ only 67,000 on it but had to spend $30K (with a dealer). Those low mileage engines certainly carry a price tag with them IF they have been taken care of.
I'd be surprised if the Seller would drop another $5k even on a bone stock EX although I do agree with AzPat, that maintenance records would help justify the additional cost over book.
All said and done, the mileage is worth something but only you can decide how much. You will potentially "recoup" some of the expense when you resell (if you don't put 100,000 miles a year on it).
As a comparison, I have 167,000 on my '02, 7.3L, 4X4 that is fully mod'ed. I would expect to get low 20's from mine but then I have all the maintenance records.
Keep in mind, The Seller always puts more value on something then the buyer and expect to spend a couple of thousand "for insurance" even if you buy it ( oil change, Transmission, transfer case, rear & front end oil, belt, Air Cleaner, etc.
