1. Switch from bolts to studs (warn has a kit to do this, or scrounge around your local hardware/auto parts store)
2. Use loctite
3. Use a torque wrench
4. Go in a wheel tightening pattern (start with one, go across the hub to the opposite side, jump back across to the opposite side again, etc. instead of tightening in a circular pattern)
5. Check the tightness once a month or after every 4wd adventure.

Trying to come up with a witty line to end all of my posts...

I was having the same problem. FarmJeep is right, use studs if you can. The
problem is the bolts get allot of stress (welded carrier doesnt help any) and end up stretching. I bought new bolts
from the hardware store and have had no problem yet; if they stretch again I will be
going to studs.

I was tightening the bolts a few times on every trip. I went to studs and never had another problem, and this was with the cheesy 5-bolts. Save yourself some money, go to your local auto store and buy the studs yourself. Use loctite and the torque wrench as recommended, no more problems.
