Here is a link that I used many years ago to get started with custom
styles for ticket search results.


I took a quick look at our site module (that I based off the above
link) and the key concept is utilizing the ColumnMap, which implies
tweaks to the columns of the resulting ticket listing. I'm not sure if
there is something that equally manipulates the ticket "row". A quick
grep of the source tree for "rowmap" yielded zero results.

Have you checked the HTML source of a listing of tickets?

 If not, it would be easy enough
