When I replaced my stock head unit with an aftermarket, the chimes box you describe was wired in by me. You can disconnect the wires, and you should then have no chimes. Also, on my unit there was no knob that you refer too. My box had two wired in jumpers. The instructions read to cut/disconnect one of the wires if the chimes were too loud. I did that, because like you, the original setup was way too loud.
I hope this helped,

Yeah, the one that the instructions told me to cut was a white wire.
Here's a link: Crutchfield
If you click on the "free installation gear" icon a second pop up box will appear. Looks like there might be one box for chimes, steering wheel control and Onstar. They have it listed for $69.00. You might want to check it out. I had to guess which stereo system you have in your truck...
I did a little more checking. The $69.00 is IF you buy a head unit from them. Otherwise the price is $139.00 Sorry about that...
Cructhfield also has great customer service...
