06 TJ Exhaust leak

I have a exhaust leak from the 4 bolts coming loose all the time between the headers and the pipe. I will tighten them and in about 100 or so miles come back loose and throw my o2 sensors. I can't double nut the bolts due to clearance at the end of bolts and dont want to weld them. any ideas on how to fix them?

Loctite is unlikely to hold up to the heat. Use self-locking nuts or stake them in place after torqueing them down.
