Default loose bolts in brake caliper

My 1999 ranger has this problem with the brake caliper bolts coming loose. I have only had this truck for about 2 months and on both sides the bolt works itself loose. Is this a common problem with these trucks?

Thanks for the response. In my lifetime I have taken off and put on many calipers and have never heard of putting loctite on the threads. I have never had any work loose either. In fact, I have never heard of caliper bolts working loose on any vehicle. But, if they need loctite I will certainly use it.
