I don't notice much difference between them except the colour and size. Rutabagas are usually larger.

Well--I notice a difference in texture and taste...and rutabagas keep longer when stored for the winter. Guess that's why they are winter turnips <g>.

What kind of cut do you use for rutabagas in pasties in order to get them to cook through and not be crunchy since nothing is pre-cooked? Ultra thin sliced?

I slice mine very thin before placing them in the pastry. I do saute the onions and celery a bit before placing in pastry. I use turnips and rutabagas. (Depending upon the season.) Same result.
